The GC3 Startup Network is working to accelerate the development and market pull of green chemistry technologies. The GC3 has created a forum for green & bio-based chemistry startups to connect to larger GC3 member chemical suppliers, brands, retailers, and investors for partnerships and investments; and larger GC3 members are tapping into the startup network to identify new technologies and up-and-coming companies.
As a member of the Startup Network, your company will be profiled on our member webpage and invited to participate in meetings, networking events, webinars, and social media campaigns. You will also become a member of the GC3 and receive full member benefits. Contact us to learn more.

A key strategy for advancing green chemistry in industry, as identified in the GC3’s Agenda to Mainstream Green Chemistry, is supporting the development and adoption of chemicals, materials, manufacturing processes and products that adhere to one or more of the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. Startups are an important driver of innovation, however many lack the connections to the strategic partners that they need for product evaluation, co-development, licensing, and investment. The GC3 is uniquely positioned to connect startups with companies and other resources throughout the value chain and in many industry sectors.
